, including congresswoman michele bachmann, house speaker john boehner whose campaign spokesperson says the website is confusion and sort of a concern. the chairman of k pack, jeff lloyd, says he is not trying to fund raise on behalf of the candidates but the efforts are geared toward online education and turning out the vote for conservatives at the federal level. the money we raised is largely reinvested almost immediately back into our web campaigns. loyd also insists the pac funds donations to anyone that request it is and they are following the letter and intent of the lawyer. i'm missing the word spirit there according to the investigation by the national journey, nearly 3,000 people have donated to-to-these kinds of sites giving more than half a million goal hearts and that may only be the tip of the iceberg. joining me now the man who worked on this story, shane oldmacer, it was interesting, you got a chance response on the record from the boehner folks, who seem to be concerned that the look of this k pac when site and they develop these individual microsites per candidate was
on. >> where are all the conservatives like michele bachmann who have been running around for several years calling it obama care, socialism and everything else, government takeover, where are the conservatives? all of a sudden they are quiet. >> they may be squawking more in the days to come. susan said ryan was a bad pick, but for a bunch of reasons. one of them is that he wasn't chosen to stand for anything. when i was wrong, i was like we're going to have a real debate about two different directions for the country. paul ryan's budget, he believes these things. president obama believes different things. mitt romney is putting meat on the bones and we're going to have a real debate. >> i thought the same thing by the way. >> whether you liked it or not, it seemed like a strategy. but then to pick paul ryan and muzzle him, i thought ryan was more damaging to the ticket than romney was on the sunday shows because if you don't let him talk about what he believes, he was like sarah palin. gasping for air. he didn't have an answer if he's told to not to talk about what he believes. >> p
seats in the house are being challenged. michele bachmann swept into office in 2010 with a 13-point lead. now she's only two points ahead of her opponent. allen west, nine-point lead in 2010 has turned into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. y
things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or democrat. 241 american servicemen were killed in 1983 when the marine barracks in beirut was bombed and ron 23458d rald reagan was president. al qaeda launched their first attacks on america during the clinton presidency. of course, the horrific attacks of 9/11 came under the presidency of george w. bush. but if you listen to mitt romney, everything that is wrong in the world can be blamed on the current presid
. todd has worked closing with michelle bachmann, they pushes things that will harm missouri. on march 8, 2011, todd akin said i don't like social security. he's bone on in this campaign to -- he would raise the retirement age he would lower the benefit. on august 13, 2011, he said medicare was constitutional. since that time, he has in fact voted several times to voucherrize medicare. it arm wrestle with them for coverage and whether their claims will be paid. i believe we can lower the deficit and debt but we will not do it, we should do not do it at the expense of these program programs for seniors. >> jonathan dine? >> welcome everybody and thank you for come out today. i want to give a big thanks for the missouri press association to host this debate. my name a jonathan dine and i'm a libertarian candidate for the united states senate. like many of you, i'm tired of the constant fighting of the republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more important. america is now on the verge of a financial collapse and both parties are to blame with their wreckless tax, borr
michele bachmann told to act like a lady. these are ways of cutting down a female candidate and reminding the electorate that's a woman running. what are some of the extra challenges that women face running for office? >> here in lies the rub. we see more than ever a lot of younger women with the drive, the ambition, the passion and skills to run, but, you know, you're hard-pressed to find any talk about the real standards they're held to, which is really how they look, how they act. standards at that frankly men don't necessarily have to adhere to. we want more candid moments in the last presidential election, hillary clinton told a reporter she felt there was a double-standard. barack obama just had to pop out of bed, jump out of shower and throw on a suit and he was ready to go. she had a lot more prep work to be done before she was camera-ready. the bottom line is women are held to a different standard, and that can be tough. >> talk about running for office, the barack obama and hillary clinton thing. barack talked about that he wears one or two suits so he doesn't think about what t
jobs. todd has worked closely with michele bachmann, and together them and a few others have really pushed things that would really harm missouri families. on march 8th of 2011, todd akin said i don't like social security, i think it's a bad investment. he's gone on in this campaign to delineate what is the triple whammy to social security. not only does he not like it, he would privatize it, put it on the roller coaster of wall street. he would raise the retirement age, and he would lower the benefit. on august 18th of 2011, he said medicare was unconstitutional. and since that time he has, in fact, voted several times to voucherrize medicare, to turn seniors over to private insurance companies, to arm wrestle with them for coverage and whether their claims will be paid and make them go in their pocket for more than $6,000 a year. i believe we can lower the deficit and debt, but we will not do it, we should not do it, we cannot do it at the expense of these important programs for seniors. >> moderator: jonathan dine. dine: want to give a big chance for the missouri press associatio
